I don't know if it's on-topic or not, but I feel like we should have some tool for re-sending the medals
for any game.

I just got in-game "kill small enemy" in this

but it seems like it didn't save to my account, which made me fucking sad.
The game is really really boring, and I don't feel like trying again in a long time.

Then again, recently a lot of that shit is happening, I don't know if newground has some problems with servers,
but it does feel infuriating.

I have had the some complaint for sometime. All games that have medals should include a medal resend function.

In addition they should remove all secret medals. They serve no purpose, except to annoy players and waste time trying to figure them out.

I agree, especially that a lot of them don't have any spoiler description anyway, and yes, they do annoy, especially that you don't know how many points they are worth either.

Those two changes would make the medal system much better.

That achievement took me the most time and I am still not quite sure how it worked. I unlocked it after multiple restarts of the game. I also tried clicking the Death Ink skull before the game started etc. It will definitely not unlock during the gameplay and has something to do with restarts or clicking various things at the start.

Game has been updated to make it a little easier, and all medals seem to work now.

It's not hard to get the high point medals. Just focouse on capturing the monsters. To capture the monsters you need to wake them up first by placing 3 or more on the same line - don't have to be next to each other. Then either destroy the line tetris style or explode a monster over it/them. Destroying a monster destroys a 3x3 area, and can also destroy the bomb. Unfortunately, the way the medals are set up, you only get one at a time. I got a score of over 20,000 and only got the 100 point medal. So you have to play the game at least 4 times to get all the medals.

Im having problems finishing this game. I have all of the bosses beaten except for the old man, and the emperor. I am currently at the point of opening the pyramid but there appears to be no button to open it even after entering the correct code gotten from the moon. Is there something I am missing or this a game breaking glitch?


Excuse me, I'm looking for a car that's been tricked out to look like an ice cream truck.

@Nijsse (or medal mods): Debugging my medals program again - something seems very wrong with Target Shot's medals.
http://nijsse.newgrounds.com/stats/medals?page=281

It has a full embedded NG page with the following error: "ERROR — Sorry, there was a problem with your request. Please try again later."

For the record, this game's title also caused a crash, though that may be a problem with the program rather than the odd character used.


See this news post for information on a program that does all kinds of neat things with medal statistics.

The submission has been deleted from the site, and there's no way I can remove the medal (that's usually still possible). I'll ask PG if he can fix the issue.

This game has two wrong answers you need to give.
1) Pokémon that can learn all moves: Mew
2) Cycling road in Kanto connects: Fuchsia & Vermillion

Both is wrong.

1) Mew cannot learn exclusive moves.
2) Cycling road in Kanto connects: Fuchsia & Celadon

I wonder why quiz games are always created by people who have not enough knowledge about the topic they choose.

As @ANISOCIAL correctly wrote in his review, level 26 has been changed in comparison to what we see in the walkthrough, sorry for Kongregating here:

http://www.kongregate.com/pages/brutal-walkthrough

In the game, the rotating right platform just falls down at the very beginning of the level and I am not sure if currently it is beatable. I tried to catapult myself to the small platforms on the right, but every time the jump was too short. You can also balance the middle rotating platform to be able to stand on it in the vertical position, but it doesn't help you to be able to jump on the top platform, it seems to be still too far from it.

Did anybody beat this level with its current configuration? As I can see nobody beat this game for few months now.

I have all the medals on it and I've beaten it some time ago but from what I remember the title is very very fitting! That game was brutally difficult. I don't remember how to do any particular level, but it's very possible some of them may have had pixel-perfect requirements. In fact I'm sure of it. Try different quality settings (It may make a difference).

And it's always possible too the game was changed since whenever it was I played it and the author broke something in an update. Or maybe it's one of those games you have to play in a specific browser. (I always hate when games are designed this way, and consider it a design flaw)

Only things I can suggest are try it in different browsers, with different quality settings, and if all else fails, wait it out some time and try the game again at a later date.

Okay well, in ANISOCIAL's review he also says level 8 is broken and different from the walkthrough. It's not. I just tried it. I don't care to play all the way through the extremely difficult game getting enough coins to open level 26 again to try that out, but see if level 8 is broken for you or not because, if it is, then it's your browser and not the game.

Play it on Firefox.

And yeah as I remembered, this is one of those extremely annoying pixel-perfection required type games. And it is brutal. I don't know that anyone would care to play through it again after getting the medals.

I personally did not have any problems with level 8, but 26... maybe it will be better if I present it in a graphic way, here is a screenshot from the walkthrough, as you can see the right rotating platform is in position:

http://tempupload.ngfiles.com/5075430.brutal-walkthrough.jpg

But the same level in the current game looks like this, the same platform falls just after I start the level.

I am using Firefox, but I don't think it is a browser issue, I rather think that for some reason @Keybol decided to make this level much harder.

It does look like an unintentional bug in that screenshot, as compared with the walkthrough but are you sure the level isn't beatable as-is? Are you sure the Newgrounds version wasn't always like that? When was the last time the game was updated and when was the last time someone earned the full completion medal? It's very possible it's been like that for quite a while, or that's the version Newgrounds always had.

From looking at that screenshot though, it seems to me you could hit that middle platform, rock it like \ then hit the left platform, rock it like / (also take the coin during this time), and hit the upper platform from there, possibly using those three steps on the right to catch your breath, then from there running it straight into the hole, depending how it spun.

Okay, scratch the idea in my previous post. (Well, get the coin using that idea, and spin the upper platform by bumping it, but I don't think you could get on the upper right platform that way).

Instead, you're going to want to hit the lower middle spinny platform when it's slanted like / run up it, with it turned just to the correct degree, jump at the last possible moment, barely hit yourself pixel perfect on the bottom of the three steps and pull yourself up, then from there you can complete out the level (may need to spin that top spinner as per the earlier idea though because it'll need to be positioned something like \ to take it from the steps).

I went through this after you posted it, and level 26 is as it appears in the walkthrough (I also use Firefox so it isn't a browser issue).

Thanks for bothering, we both know how hard this game is. So for you that right platform is not falling at the beginning of the level?

Then the hell if I know why is it happening... What OS are you using and what version of Flash player?
I PMed Keybol about it, but unfortunately got no answer. Definitely it has to be a bug of some sort.

By the way, does anybody know if it is possible to transfer saved game from Firefox to Chrome on Win 8.1? Could try it on another browser, but when I am thinking about having to pass all these levels again...

Ok, I did a complicated operation to deal with it. I transferred the save from Firefox to Chrome to find out that this problem is not occurring in this browser (so how about that? - it is a browser problem), but on the other hand occasionally the lower middle platform is falling! I finished the level, but as the game lags on Chrome I copied the new save back to Firefox and finally finished the game :-) I am only missing one more coin for 100%, but I know I can do it :-)

If you want to do it - do it BEFORE you finish the game. Due to a ridiculous setting made by @gamezhero programmers, when you finish the game, the endless mode locks and it doesn't seem to be any way to unlock it again, so the only thing you can do is to start the game entirely from the scratch. I hope they will fix it soon.

You don't understand the problem. I finished the game, right? But when I did it yesterday and wanted to try to get the Fruit King medal, I saw that the game screen, in which you can choose to play the endless mode looks like this again:

I can't get the baking soda off the ledge in the "use your head" level (6 I believe), no matter how many times I push it from the side or the bottom. Am I doing it wrong?
Also, how do you "cheat"? Konami code, right click, and pressing random keys don't work.


See this news post for information on a program that does all kinds of neat things with medal statistics.

In case you're still wondering about level 6 - you push it from the side, then go on the other side and push it up from the bottom (once it's on your head, move and it will stick with you).
